I have a problem. When I click 'apply' in 'Path to Ccode' a window appears with next text - 'Path to Ccode' working, please wait - and than nothing happens. So problem with Measure extension: 'Measure Path' working, please wait.
What should I do to fix it?

Hi!

I'm trying to make a file for pen plotter using gcodetools.
Most of images are pretty complicated, so let's say it's just a simple shape with a wide contour and some small details inside.
Is there any way to draw it whole (ie. "what is black will be black on print")? Cutrently I'm getting only countours of the shapes, without infill.
I tried area, but 1. It takes lots of time to convert (for some reason Inkscape uses only 1 core) and 2. It breaks some inner details (expansion needed to completely fill bigget countour will turn small details into shapeless blobs).

What I'd like to achieve is 3D-printer-like style, ie. contours of filled contour drawn first, then: a) infill at constant angle or b) concentric infill (similar to area but only between previously drawn contours).

What I usually get vs what I want to achieve but more efficient and repeatable way.

Hi All,

I'm trying to use the AREA FILL functionality of this plug-in to create G-Code.

However, when I go to use this, I don't get the back and fourth pattern like the images in the instructions have.... I don't believe it's working properly.

Is there any updated tutorial on how to do this using 1.7?

The process I used was I made a simple rectangle, added some text, did a difference. Made sure object was path -- Then I used "Fill Area" tab in GCode Extension... No matter what parameters I put in, nothing seems to happen when I click Apply.

I get the errors:
Orientation points have not been defined! A default set of orientation points has been automatically added.
Cutting tool has not been defined! A default tool has been automatically added.

Then, my image has some simple spiral or zig zag pattern that isn't one that goes back and fourth like I would need.

$100 via PayPal to anyone that can help me figure this out and get multiple layer CNC going.

please contact me at healeyv3 at gmail.com if you think you can TeamViewer in and help me get this going.

Thanks!
